Vancouver, BC, Canada / (CKNW AM) AM980

A young man who died at the Pemberton Music Festival Friday night wasn’t murdered.

Police had been treating his death as suspicious, but an autopsy has ruled out foul play.

In a statement, Staff Sergeant Jennifer Pound says, “As a result of evidence found at the scene, witness statements and the autopsy completed on Nick Phongsavath, it has been determined that Foul play is not a contributing factor in his death.”

Nick of Regina was 21 years old.

His body was found in a tent at a campground which had to be cordoned off for several hours… forcing some other campers to find other accommodations.

The Sea-to-Sky detachment will now be handling the investigation.
